Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

Helmar is great stuff, after cleaning l bore scope and carbons is gone. Just don't over scrub or you need a range for it to settle down. The Helmar copper remover isn't as good, needs improving. Trevor ,I will have to disagree! My testing over the last 12 months has shown me that the Copper Remover...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Pete, That's about right my yearly subs are around $500 plus $15 range fees for a Saturday afternoon. The "club" part is about $60 from memory and rest is NRAA/NSWRA plus a fee to the range complex which pays rent to the State Gov and running costs of the range. Regards Matt P Matt what w...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Good!..... we have all had our say, now put it in a email and don't let George have a break over Xmas as he should be swamped with replies and hope that the NRAA are in favour with the results of George's end review of new class.
